Kit mikayi


Rock formations in Kisumu county. The guide told us they get the name from the man who first settled here, Ngeche, since he preferred the quiet of the rocks to the company of the first wife. So the rocks became the first wife.

    The thing that always amazes me about pictures like this (the gigantic-ness of the rocks) is how “Man” thinks he’s so great, so smart, so in control … yet he’s DWARFED to his “real” size by nature’s magnificence.

    I’d have preferred the company of the rocks to my first wife too. I have to settle for the river here.

      Does the first missus explain why you became a philosopher :)?
      Socrates is reported to have said “by all means marry, if you get a good wife you will be happy if a bad one, you will become a philosopher.”
